The last morning at Derwent Hill has once more dawned bright
and warm and better still they are packed in record time.
After a big breakfast the children will be making the most of the
last few hours visiting mines, orienteering, climbing the big swing
and cleaning all the mucky kit ready for the journey home.
The children spent a beautiful morning canoeing on the lake.
An amazing afternoon was spent tackling the Gorge with lots of
laughs and challenges. Then back to base to dry off, enjoy
their evening meal and to make the most of their
last night together.
Another good night's sleep and the children woke refreshed and
raring to go. The weather was dry and the children made the
most of the clear skies and the breathtaking scenery.
Mrs Giles' group climbed Gowbarrow Fell and saw an
amazing waterfall and Mrs Hastie's group climbed to the
top of Dodd Summit, whilst Miss Carney's group
tackled rock climbing at Shepherd's Crag.
After Breakfast the children wrapped up warm for another
action packed day. Mrs Cooper's group climbed to the top
of Catbells and Mrs Hastie's group tackled Latrigg whilst
Mr Gowland's Group braved Gorge walking. Everyone had a
fantastic day and returned back to base for a warm meal and
a good night's sleep.
After arriving safely the children unpacked, made packed
lunches and set off for their first day of adventure.
Mrs Giles' group climbed Latrigg.
